Acknowledgments The Canada’s Islands database was compiled as part of a postdoctoral project with the Institute of Island Studies, at the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. This project was funded by the postdoctoral bursary program of the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture. Lorraine Guay would like to thank the fonds québécois for its financial support, which made this research possible. She also wished to thank Harry Baglole and Jane Ledwell of the Institute of Island Studies, who welcomed her during my stay. Finally, she would like to thank Godfrey Baldacchino, Canada Research Chair in Island Studies, for his collaboration. Sarah Joncas, student in the Master of Arts (Island Studies) program at UPEI, kindly translated the material from French into English.
